Court Upholds Ban On Kosher Food At Shabbat Met Games

03/14/2013

You can still buy peanuts and cracker jacks, but kosher hot dogs won't be available at New York Mets games when the Amazin's play on Friday night or Saturday.

A federal appeals court told a kosher hot dog vendor in New York that its agreement with Citi Field precludes it from selling kosher products at the stadium on Shabbat.

Kosher Sports Inc. had a 10-year contract with Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, to sell hot dogs, sausages and other kosher products in the stadium through October 2018. In 2010, the kosher food distributor sued Citi Field operators for preventing its workers from selling their products on Friday nights and Saturdays, and for attempting to stop the company from obtaining a fourth food cart.

A caterer struck out in his attempt to sell kosher hot dogs on Saturday at Citi Field.

Jewish Heritage Day at baseball games have a long list of established traditions that sometimes occur — the singing of “HaTikvah” on the field, kosher food at concession stands, an opening prayer by a rabbi, the ceremonial first pitch thrown by a member of the Jewish community. Always, there is an increased number of Jewish fans in the stands.

The New York Mets on Sunday established a new tradition — the game-winning, bottom-of-the-ninth, walk-off home run by a Jewish player.

Mets Call Error On Kosher Food

08/17/2010

Reports of imminent kosher food sales during Shabbat Mets’ games appear to be off-base.

The Mets are disputing reports in local tabloids that a federal judge ordered the team to allow Kosher Sports Inc. to open its three stands at Citi Field on Friday nights and Saturdays.

Stories in the New York Post and Daily News “contain numerous errors and mischaracterize the court’s verbal ruling,” the team said in an e-mailed statement.

NEW YORK (JTA) -- Reports saying that a judge ruled that the New York Mets' ballpark must allow a kosher-food vendor to sell its products on the Jewish Sabbath "mischaracterize the court's verbal ruling," the team said.

According to a report in The New York Daily News, as well as the New York Post, a Brooklyn federal judge ruled that Kosher Sports Inc. should be allowed to sell its products on Friday nights and Saturdays at Citi Field in Queens.
